St. Jeanne d’Arc's Day (30/05)

On May 30, the Catholic Church celebrates Saint Joan of Arc's Day.

Jeanne d'Arc (modern French Jeanne d'Arc) is the patroness of the military and France. In 1920, Joan of Arc was canonized by Pope Benedict XV, even though people have worshiped her for centuries.

Jeanne was born in 1412 in the French village of Domremy. At the age of 12 she had her first revelation. According to her, Jeanne heard the voices of the Archangel Michael, St. Catherine and St. Margaret, who prepared her for the special mission of the savior of France. The country was in a critical situation - all of northern France was occupied by the British, the army was extremely weakened, the question arose of the independence of the French state.
